A Very Brief History of Catwoman

Pussies Galore:
 In the Batman Comics of the 1930's Salina Kyle was a diamond thief first, a "cat burglar"; she then donned a mask and was known as "The Cat"; and finally she got a sensible pair of high heels and a half mask and Catwoman was born ...In the 60's Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether and Eartha Kitt all took turns playing rather sexy versions of Catwoman in the Batman TV show.

Later on Michelle Pfeiffer would pretty much nail the role in Batman Returns playing Catwoman / Salina as a tortured creature who was part sex goddess and part kick ass anti hero.

This weekend,  one of the most talented (and most beautiful) actresses of our time is taking on the role.  While I am sure the film is going to make a lot of money, I doubt it will be worth the ten dollar price of admission.  Halle, honey, how much did they offer you for this role?

Would somebody put a call into Billy Bob Thorton quick; Billy Bob! Get cracking on a new role for Ms. Berry.

Meow, indeed.
